Unfortunately we didn't check trip advisor before we went. This restaurant came highly recommended from a tour guide so to say the experience was disappointing is an understatement. Overall the food was decent but the service was the worst we have seen in Madeira by far. The service ruined any positives. It was clear that we were not welcomed or... More

Visited often in previous years - now under new owners. Food was awful, fish overlooked, worst chips ever had, soggy vegetables and everything swimming in grease. Certainly will not be back.

Under new owners and the atmosphere is a huge improvement, the female guitarist was particularly good. Food was good and the service will hopefully become a little more polished with time. Fixed price menu wasn't explained to us, although what we had from the standard menu was ok for price.

Very disappointing. Local style food, plastic flowers, large telivision with football, this is definitely not the L'osteria we have enjoyed for many years. Signs outside offering special prices but not available inside, we have read the recent Tripadvisor reports, but didn't believe the. WE DO NOW.

Have visited this Restaurant quite a few times this year (The most recent was last Sunday night) and have never been disappointed. Every Starter, Main meal and Dessert we've had is delicious. Staff are great. Thank you Amaro, Silvana, Marcio (aka The Man in the Hat) and Mario for making us feel so welcome. See you all soon x

This was an excellent restaurant in the past but on our recent visit it was no so good. Various meal deals were on offer and we we persuaded to take one that on the face of it was good value. However once inside this 'deal' was not offered to us until we asked. Of our selections, whilst one meal was... More

We have eaten here many times over the years so were a bit concerned when we sensed a change this time - 7 months ago it changed hands. We needn't have worried though the standard and format have been maintained. The menu has been altered somewhat - we dined from the fixed price, wine inclusive menu. Our choices were not... More

Headed this restaurant as it close to our hotel & we had read good reviews. We had a lovely welcome from a gent in a straw hat who settled us outside. We could hear a female soloist performing inside, she had a fantastic voice. The starter of bruschetta with pesto was nice but overly salted. The lasagna was quite dry... More

First I must say they had live music. A young lady with a beautiful voice kept us well entertained. The food took a long time to come and looked average on the plate. It tasted better than it looked but have had better for less. The staff are very entertaining sometimes for the wrong reason as two returned dishes crashed... More
